I generally love O'Reilly books because the authors usually have a close relationship with the subject and can therefore write about the things that will be true when the book comes out. However, this book came out in August '06 but the SOAP API stopped working in December '06. By the time I bought it at the Maker Faire in San Mateo in May '07, none of the web pages or sample code in the first chapter worked.

I suggest forgetting about this book. Google moves too fast, you might as well get the information directly from them instead of reading about APIs and websites that don't work. I sure wish I had.
